Sniffle, Sniffle

No, that's not a nod to the state of my health, although it could be. I think I've officially coughed up a lung. But don't worry, I'm pretty sure I can live with just one.

It's due to the fact that our beloved pet giraffe, Gemina died. Well, she's not really our PET, per say, but she was the beloved, world famous, "Crooked Neck Giraffe" at our zoo. She was quite an attraction and I noticed when we were there on Tuesday that she was penned up on the side, and she was standing up and resting her head on the top of a wall. It looked odd, but I thought maybe she was just scratching her head. Guess not.

Poor Gemina. She will be missed.
